About 70% of sub-arachnoid haemorrhages result from the rupture of an intracranial “berry” aneurysm. Most aneurysms affect the anterior circulation and 15% of patients have more than one. Standard treatment for an aneurysm includes occlusion of the aneurysm from the cerebral circulation by clipping its neck.

There are over 70 different models of permanent clips, 19 temporary clips and 1 booster clip, as well as been fenestrated and straight. The clips come in standard and mini sizes, so as to accommodate almost any kind of aneurysm size and shape. The characteristics of the titanium alloy give minimal artefacts and better image analysis as well as having a specific weight lower than the cobalt alloy.
